    As a result of being more than pleased with all my previous orders. I elected to try something new. I am still learning about aquarium plants as I transition from artificial aquariums to planted. These plants did come with roots, and they were long enough plants to reach the bottom of my 20 gal. to the top and then some! They did not have snails or snail eggs. They were very healthy and strong. They are thriving in my aquarium and growing already! I am confident they will do just as well as my other orders. The package arrived on time, and (friendly customer service) professionally packaged. I love it! I would recommend you try some for yourself. We love it!

    Great plant, nice roots and started sprouting from nodes readily. Excellent buy and a nice specimen.

    Kind of a sparse bundle, one cutting died, but the rest are growing new roots fast.

    Pennywort Brazilian

    Posted by Greg on Oct 3rd 2020

    I received many stems, way more than I thought I would get. Granted they only had one large leaf, but it didn't take very long before offshoots started to appear. I am happy with my purchase.

    Need reviving, but are great plants

    Posted by Amanda on Jul 3rd 2020

    When these arrived, all of the leaves had melted, so I removed the dead matter and let them float in my tank to revive. Within days (maybe even day?) new leaves were sprouting. Just keep trimming off dead areas and these plants will take off like a shot. I’ve had them just about a week and they’ve already filled out nicely. I’ve got several stalks “planted” in my gravel and they’re already developing a nice leafy area for my schooling fish to hang out. If yours arrive melted, don’t despair! They come springing back, and look great when they do.

    Cool plant

    Posted by Brian carter on May 27th 2020

    This is a plant I've been wanting to grow for a while. I received 2 nice big bunches. I think one was thrown in with my assortment but I specifically ordered 1. All but 3 stems died within a couple days. I never expect everything to live and grow. The few stems that lived are growing and getting air roots up the stems so it should grow and propagate fine.

    Plant quality

    Posted by Dan Miller on Jan 17th 2020

    Plants arrived as promised, with two extra that I didn't know I qualified for! After a few days in tank, I already have new growth! A+

    Very Pleased

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 30th 2014

    Two day shipping and they came in perfect condition. So pretty! The only problem is that you need some type of anchor because these come as stems, no roots. My fish easily uproot them and I find them floating in my tank often. They are starting to grow roots after about a month and I am seeing new growth. This is a really nice plant!

    Patience is a virtue.

    Posted by Michael on Jun 15th 2014

    Even though I only got 5 stems with my order, most being quite bare, I have to admit after just over a week, 4 of the 5 stems are putting out new leaves and looking pretty good. It has been pretty hot here so I'm curious if next day shipping would have been better for them. Either way, I'm happy they are taking off and I'm pretty satisfied with my order now. Thank you.

    Nice surface plant

    Posted by Brad Darnell on Jul 13th 2012

    Once these get established you will be trimming often. I love the Pennywort and it is one of the easiest and fastest plants to grow that I ever owned. Has a lillypad look on the surface of your tank. PRETTY!

    Nice Plant

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 13th 2011

    Ordered one bunch and came with plants. All of them had leaves the size of a nickle. Some had even larger leaves. I was not expecting this sense all the other reviews said they didn't come with big leaves. Mine came just fine without any brown or damaged leaves I have to cut off. Well worth it!!
